You Know You're From Colorado When....

Living in Colorado, we always hear some funny sayings that do hold true when you live in Colorado ---

 

1.   You always know which direction is West.   (the mountains never move)

 

2.   You're always waiting for the moment your entire state erupts into wildfires every June through August.

 

3.  The snow stopped, so you then see some people wearing shorts and hiking boots.

 

4.   The need to shovel to get to the BBQ grill, no matter what time of year it is.

 

5.  You struggle to figure out which brewery to meet friends at --- there are so many to choose from!

 

6.  You were always jealous of Jake Jabs, as he got to play with the tigers in the American Furniture commercials.

 

7.   Denver just had 5 inches of snow, and it is a normal day..... still need to go to work....lives go on, no biggie!

 

8.  You have no accent at all, but can hear other people’s.

 

9.  You know you’re from COLORADO if:    "Humid" is over 25%.  It's MUGGY!

 

10.   You actually know that South Park is a real place, and know where it is,  not just a show on TV. 

 

11.  You know what a 'trust fund hippie' is, and you know its natural habitat is Boulder. 

 

12.  If you live near the foothills, a bear on your front porch doesn't surprise you, or deer/elk laying in your front yard.

 

13.  If it rains more than 2 days straight you compare the weather to being in Seattle.

 

14.  You go for a walk in the neighborhood, and smell a "skunk".  NOPE, just pot!  

 

15.  When people out East tell you they have mountains in their state too, you just laugh. 

 

Some of these you will only chuckle if you live here, and you KNOW. 

 

                                                  Happy Saturday!

Hi Joan:

Those are pretty funny!

I have only driven through CO on the way from Boston to LAX years ago taking my daughter and her car to college. The mountains were amazing.

Hi Joan... maybe because I've had family in Colorado for decades, I totally get virtually all of these. Here in the Charlotte we also see those shorts wearers in December.

Good ones. I've only visited Colorado once, when my son was working there.

We went sightseeing up a mountain from Telluride and I decided I did not want to do that again - I kept my eyes closed much of the way. All the markers honoring snow plow drivers who had died on that road were pretty creepy!

I was able to chuckle at quite a few of these and some reminded me of living in Hawaii and having school canceled because it rained (I never could figure that out being from Washington state) 😃

It is always a good day to BBQ and, for that matter, head over to the local pub.  MM and I were driving in Florida one day when I decided to "Google" the height of the tallest mountain in Florida.  It was 345 feet high and the site that came up mentioned that you could reach the summit without a Sherpa. 🤣

Marte Cliff the steep roads are most prevalent around Telluride.   Not as much here in Denver.
